Nare Point takes quite an effort to get to, as you would imagine from its isolated position. It’s an ex-MOD observatory that the voluntary National Coastwatch Institute (NCI) have taken on and are renovating for their purposes. Like the RNLI, the NCI have a vital role in safeguarding us in Cornwall and those of us who go to sea, keeping an eye out for seafarers and walkers alike. The volunteers were very friendly and I enjoyed the panoramic view of the Helford Estuary and Falmouth Bay. There are no facilities for the public here, but it’s well worth the walk out to Nare Point.
